New iPhone could make history

Nichole VegaSep 13, 2018

It follows previous rumours that the company will introduce a larger screened 6.5in iPhone - allegedly the XS Max - alongside the new 5.8in display iPhone XS, which is the same size screen as last year's iPhone X.

Like the iPhone X, the XS has a 5.8-inch OLED screen, while the XS Max boasts a mammoth 6.5-inch OLED display.

The iPhone Xr will come in six colors on top of a 7000-series aluminum finish ranging from blue to gold to black, white and red.

There's the same A12 Bionic processor and the same 12MP wide-angle camera from its big brothers - yes, there's just one rear-facer, but it offers numerous same features.

In addition to the phones, Apple announced the next generation of the Apple Watch, complete with a surprising new feature approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that allows users to gather and track heart data.

'The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminum and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six lovely finishes. Here's what you need to know about the trio of smartphones, including confirmation of dual-Sim support.

The event was more than just iPhones, of course - the company also unveiled products including the Apple Watch Series 4 and new AirPods 2 wireless earbuds with Siri voice control.

The popular company excitingly announced the new products along with other impressive products at their annual press event on September 12, which took place in the Steve Jobs Theater at the company's Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, CA.

As announced at this morning's event, 2017's iPhone X became the single most popular smartphone in the world over the past year, and it never had a home button. The new A12 is the industry's first 7nm design, which shows how far Apple's chip designers have come in just a few years.

iPad may also get some attention, with two new and improved models possibly on the schedule.

Perhaps no detail was more important than the key piece of information Apple kept secret until today: pricing. The upgrade could include better battery life, a hands-free Siri feature and be waterproof.

The sitemap also listed a range of leather and silicone cases for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Apple says the new watch will be able to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call if it detects that a user has fallen down. It would have an OLED display with richer colors, and Wall Street is targeting a price of $1,049 or $1,099 versus the current $999 base price for the iPhone X. It starts at $749 for a 64GB version, and there are also 128GB and 256GB versions.
